  • New Exhibit

    We have closed the doors for the month of June and are working on the new exhibit.    All Aboard: Now and Then.  It will be all about trains.  We are excited about how this is developing and are anxious to see it come to life.  We need a few artistic types to help with two wall murals.  If you can help please call Jeanne at 314-941-2097   I hope you have seen our "Donate" button.  Funds are always lacking so if you can help please do.  Thanks in advance.

  • Kids & Art

    Lots of kids on Monday.  More coming Friday.  They really enjoyed McKenzie Johnston showing them the details in a Randal Spangler picture. 

    His works are very detailed and the children loved pointing out the neat things that caught their eye.

  • Scott Gustafson

    We are proud to add Scott Gustafson’s original art works to the Museum.
        Scott’s earliest ambition was to become an animator.  It wasn’t until after leaving art school that the possibility of a career as a freelance illustrator began to truly appeal to him. Over the nearly twenty-five years that span his career, he has had the opportunity to fulfill commissions for a number of varied clients and publishers.
        Scott’s latest release “Favorite Nursery Rhymes From Mother Goose” features over 45 color illustrations.  This book was awarded a Silver Best Children’s Book by the 2008  Independent Publishers Book Awards.
        We have several of Scott’s prints, books and a few originals available for purchase.
  • Randal Spangler Exhibit

    Noted Kansas City artist Randal Spangler will be at the Museum Thanksgiving Weekend 2010.   Randal's wonderfully detailed art brings his world of draglings, wizards, and magical mansions to life for all to delight in.  Drop in and say" Hello" to Randal.  Browse thru a large assortment of his art and perhaps select a lasting gift for someone special,  Hours: Friday 11am to 5pm Sat 11am to 5pm, Sun Noon to 4 pm.
